Artarmon
Junior Builders, for ages 5–8 ($99)

During the July school holidays, children of Foxtel staff at Artarmon (ages 5-8) will have the exciting opportunity to participate in a fascinating two day Building and Junior Robotics program. This program will be run at Foxtel Artarmon and conducted by BRICKS 4 KIDZ!

The two day school holiday program is designed to engage children with fundamentals of Building, Coding and Junior Robotics.

How would you like to turn your next LEGO® creation into a robot, programmed to do exactly what you tell it to do? The Junior Builder Coding with Robotics program offers all the fun of building with LEGO® PLUS the challenge of software coding!

We’ll start by introducing our unique kits with motors and batteries to get the children building motorised models with our 2D and 3D designs and imaginative play.  We’ll gradually build on the skills acquired by introducing WeDo® Junior Robotics on Day Two. Using drag-and-drop icon-based LEGO® WeDo® software, this fun, action-packed program provides an inspiring and accessible introduction into the world of computer programming and robotics. It combines real-life skills with real-kid fun!

The program will be held at:
Fox Sports Artarmon
4 Broadcast Way
Green Rooms 2 & 3

Supervision is available from 8am – 3.30pm.

Please note this workshop is ONLY for the children of Foxtel Artarmon Office staff members. Please use your Foxtel or Fox Sports email address when enrolling your child.

All kids get to take home a BRICKS 4 KIDZ t-shirt and cap at the end of the workshop!

Master Builders, for ages 9–12 ($99)

During the July school holidays, children of Foxtel staff at Artarmon (ages 9-12) will have the exciting opportunity to participate in an engaging two day Coding with MINDSTORMS® Robotics program.  This program will be run at Foxtel Artarmon and conducted by BRICKS 4 KIDZ!

The students will use LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 technology to plan, test and modify sequences of instructions from a variety of real life robotic behaviours. Students will be captivated as they incorporate the newest generation of motors, sensors and software by programming their commands directly into their own purpose built robots. Students work in pairs to solve challenges, allowing them to learn complex problem solving and team work skills, in a fun environment.

This two day program provides opportunities for students to learn new skills and participate in activities with a strong focus on STEM learning.  Students will be given an introduction to MINDSTORMS® Robotics and they will be inspired to view MINDSTORMS® as a learning tool!

The program will be held at:
